OUR TECHNOLOGY

  1. Auto Refractor:

    The auto refractor helps us to take some measurements. First we will measure your refractive error; this will help us know what prescription will correct your vision. The instrument is using light to take these measurements you will not feel anything.  


  1. OCT:

    Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an extremely advanced health check for people of all ages. It is quite different from digital eye photograph which only takes images of the surface of the back of the eye. This scan sees under the retina to parts that cannot be seen by ordinary examination. Very similar to Ultrasound, the OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers that make up the back of your eye. There is an additional charge for our OCT scan, but the benefits are clear. So enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your eyes are in great condition.

  1. Non-Contact Tonometry NCT:

    This provides a measurement of the internal fluid pressure of the eye (IOP inter ocular Pressure). The doctor uses this information, along with other examination procedures to determine if you have a risk of developing glaucoma or if there is an increased pressure due to injury or surgery. There will be a small puff of air but it is completely painless.


  1. Retinal Image:

    This takes a picture of the surface of the back of the eye, the retina, and shows us what the eye looks like in real time. This compete picture aids in diagnosis and we can record what your eyes look like and this gives us the opportunity to explain what we see and also allows us to follow any changes that may occur over the years.

  2. Optomap:

    This takes an ultra-wide digital retinal image of the retina. You and the optometrist can view the entire retina to see if it is healthy. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain which can result in impaired vision or blindness. Most retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully with early detection.

  1. Visual Field:

    A visual field test is a method of measuring an individual's entire scope of vision, that is their central and peripheral (side) vision. Visual field testing actually maps the visual fields of each eye individually. This tests for central or peripheral retinal disease, Glaucoma, Macular Dengeration, optic nerve disease, and diseases affecting the visual pathways within the brain. Also loss of vision due to injury.
